OK, thanks. I guess what I then don't understand is role of the ldap
user/machine/group suffixes in smb.conf. I'll have to go do some more

cn=Domain Users is a Group. Users are added as members of the Group.
ou=People is an Organizational Unit. It is just that - for
organization. Just because a user is under an OU, doesn't necessarily
mean that they have any additional rights (though you might tie some
type of security to the user account being under a specific OU). Think
about it like this, if your org has an office in NYC and another office
in LA, you might have a separate phone list for each office. The people
in NYC generally don't care about the people in the LA office.
